If you have any kind of physical injury or limitation some of the exercises on the 21 Day Fix program are HARD to do! Really they are just plain hard for even healthy people! So we have tried to create some ways that you can modify the exercises so you can still follow along with the DVDs. Yes, the DVD does have a modification but even that can be difficult at times so we have taken it down another notch and used a chair to make it easier. Keep checking back! This is a work in progress and we will be adding more videos with modifications!
These exercises are especially friendly to those who have arthritic issues. Joint pain is no joke and kneeling on the floor doesn’t sound like any fun. As always I am not YOUR doctor so please always check with your doctor before doing any exercise program. A general rule, if it hurts then don’t do it… be smart people!
And one last thing… if you want us to come up with a modification for an exercise just send us an email. We’d be happy to create something! Let us know your limitation and I’ll give you an example of what I might do to modify! The IMPORTANT thing is to just KEEP MOVING! Even if it is just sitting in a chair and marching your feet at least you are moving!
We have challenge groups on our team that are focused for the age group 50+. If you want “in” send us a message! We’d love to have you on our team!
Congrats on wanting to be active! Cheers to a healthy lifestyle!
Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control… My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6’s! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
